State of the Horus  

[Cross-posted from my MovableType Blog]

It's been a grueling few weeks for the little guy. First, I took all of his stuff away. Then I moved him in the middle of the night to a new place. A place with very different (and in a few cases, disturbing) smells and sights. He was just getting comfortable in this new place when I pulled the biggest whoppers of them all. Nothing could have prepared him for the last 48 hours.

First, after several days of getting used to weird smells, he had a "viewing." He saw one of the reasons for the change in the strange smells. One of the closed doors to one of the rooms opened a crack and there was ANOTHER CAT! There was growling and a bit of hissing, and some puffing, but then it was over. Except now he new the terrible secret about that room.

AND THEN, yesterday, he went back into the box, back into the car, and onto a cold table at the Vee-Eee-Tee. She poked and prodded him in all his no-no places (BADTOUCH!BADTOUCH!NOMEANSNO!) and then he got Ess-Aych-Oh-Tee-Ess! He was a very brave boy, but was very happy to be back in the weird, new place after that. Even if one of the rooms might be infested with weird animals.

Current Mood: mischievousmischievous
Current Music: Random Train Sounds (completely different from the opening to "I've Seen It All" — Björk)

Was he not neutered yet?

No, he's been neutered since I got him @ 6 weeks old. But he got an exam, which involved poking & prodding his belly, and taking his temperature.

Oh noes!!! Not teh temperature!!!

Downer wants to laugh at Hbomb but is too afraid this may result in his own vee-eee-tee visit (he's due fairly soon). And at least Horus should be comforted that the mystery cat in the next room will not be Downer :)

I think Horus would prefer it if the mystery cat WAS Downer. I actually wonder if he remembers Downer anymore. That thought makes me sad. Oh, wait, I was already sad. Well, it depresses me further.

sorry you're feeling down. seriously. seems to be going around right now.

And I am double sure that Downer would rather be hanging out with Hbomb and mystery cat rather than these three loonies. As long as he gets to keep BabyGobbles.

Cause, you know- it's somehow OK that my cat has longer term relationships than I do...

Argh! Now I'm depressed too.
